aperture adjustment on nikkor sw 90/8

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

while the aperture adjustment on each of my other lenses has a certain amount of tension/stiffness (ie, it takes some effort to move the lever, and it tends to stay where you put it), the adjustment on my nikkor sw 90/8 is quite loose - the lever offers little or no resistance, so it is easily knocked out of adjustment if you happen to brush your finger against it when you cock the shutter. the problem is exacerbated since the lens is mounted on a recessed board and it is already tricky enough to access the controls (at f22, the lever is inconveniently located directly behind the cocking arm, and is quite a pain on occasion). is there anything i can do to address this problem? thanks.

Sorry, I don,t have the answer, but I bet S.K.Grimes knows, and can repair it for you. I have used his services and can highly recommend him to you. http://www.skgrimes.com/products/index.htm should get you to him. Jeff
